Celebrating Peaceful, Harmonious Holidays (MLE)

So often, unrealistic expectations of the “perfect holiday” mar the joyous peace of the season. In this session, we will discuss those expectations and learn to create new traditions that bring joy to all while reducing stress, overspending, and exhaustion. We will also explore the many emotional issues (grief, loneliness, isolation, and stress) that can make the holidays a very difficult time. The goal of this session is to help you to reduce stress and experience peace and joy.   Zoom link information
